children's reading corner

We've been making weekly trips to the library, checking out 5 books at a time and enjoying them over the following days. My selection process at this point usually looks like this: keeping an eye on Maggie as she plays with toys or books and talks to other kiddos, while grabbing various books, flipping through them, looking at the number of sentences or words, the illustrations, and the general feel of the story. It takes about 7 minutes and I've selected my 5 for the week.
This one made it into our bag on Wednesday and it's *wonderful*! I love the illustrations, rhyme, and storyline creativity. Ever wonder why your snowman looks droppy the next morning? Read Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner to find out!


  1. I love these book recs! Will have to write this one down to check out next time!


  2. We have this book! Got it a few years ago for Angelina. :) SO cute!
